Knights Ferry Raft Rental

The closest summertime rafting to the San Francisco Bay Area and Central Valley! You'll be surprised that such an entertaining river is located so close to home. The trip is wildly popular with experienced and inexperienced paddlers, especially on the weekends.  This is due to the Stanislaus River's beautiful scenery, easy but fun rapids and ripples, great swimming holes and its close to home!  This float trip is approximately 8 miles long and is ideal for families, church and business groups, as well as boy scouts and other civic organizations. Trip is 3-5 hours total time. What does a day with River Journey Adventures include? High quality raft(s) or kayak(s), lifejackets and paddles. We fit your group in 4, 6, 8 or 10 man rafts. Fun staff who also live and play on the Stanislaus and a professional safety orientation. Return shuttle and FREE parking on Mon-Thurs! (Since we are local and meet you at our River Store on most weekdays).  Since we are the locals favorite you get a discount at the Knights Ferry Ice Cream Parlor.   Concerned about your valuables? (that you forget to leave at home) We also are the only company to provide each reservation with a small dry box. Beautiful riverside resort for our catered BBQ trips and overnight camping trips. A Fun Day on a Beautiful River!  Great price for 3-5 hours on the river, outside with family and friends!
